Please tell me you didn’t just totally delete the files. I mean, take them off Medium…fine. It’s their space. But just delete?

I copy and paste all my twitter, FB, and various discussion responses into my Notes [Mac], where I can keyword search…and find dozens of ideas for Medium half written already.

I post a lot of threads on Twitter where I have a small but nonetheless respectable size for a “nobody” following of 6.8K. They end up on Medium. Revised, of course. Expanded, of course. I’m never lacking an idea for writing.

So…yes…you saved all that stuff for publishing elsewhere. Right? I didn’t get to read it.
